technology's being used, what the health conditions of your workplace are, what's done with the fruits of your labor, literally whether your factor or your office continues, since you have to live with those decisions you ought to participate, the basic idea of democracy. so i like the idea of cooperative enterprises because it fulfills my value commitment to democracy. whereas a capitalist enterprise doesn't because it keeps all the decision making in a tiny minority. we all who go to work have to live with their decisions, but we don't articipate in them, not even to speak of the community that has to live with the decisions. but the second reason is i see concrete results coming from an enterprise that was run by the workers collectively, and let me give you a few examples. first, most of us believe that if the workers themselves made a decision that they would close the enterprise and move it to china, i don't think so. i think that the whole running away of enterprises out of the united states was made possible because the decisions to close enterprises here and to open them in an

technologies, but rapid economic growth in emerging economies is also increasing demand. the use of water resources is projected to rise by 50% in developing countries and by 18% in the industrialized parts of the globe. water pollution is not helping the situation, either. nor is climate change -- certain regions are literally trying out. many countries are introducing desalination systems and drip irrigation, but these solutions are of little use to the world's poor, for home water scarcity is becoming an increasingly pressing problem. >> the united nations says access to clean drinking water is a human right. but that right is not insured everywhere, especially in countries where water is a scarce resource. >> you would think that countries such as germany with abundant amounts of water would have no problems, but they do when accessibility becomes a business. >> the berlin water table citizens group is rehearsing a song they have adapted to protest against private water companies. they have come up with a reworked version of the popular 1920's tune "veronica spring has come." in
